St. Luke’s embraces technology tools that improve student efficacy and learning outcomes in a developmentally appropriate way. We feel students should develop expertise here at school with the tools that they will use at college and in the workplace and understand what it means to be a Digital Citizen.
St. Luke’s provides the following technology to students:
Fifth through seventh grade students receive Chromebooks - laptops that pair a simplified operating system with cloud-based online applications. Fifth and sixth grade Chromebooks stay in school, to be used in school only, while seventh graders are allowed to take their Chromebooks home.
Eighth through twelfth grade students receive a Macbook Air laptop for use in school and to take home. Students use this technology for digital books or lessons, as well as to research, write, or create using more sophisticated applications, such as those for editing video and audio.
All students and teachers use Google Docs, which allows for easy collaboration with fellow students and teachers. Paired with our school website’s Learning Management System, these tools allow many classes to provide online experiences where students may learn outside of class, at their own individual pace.
